Nancy Pelosi, Hypocrite

Nancy Pelosi has again showed her true colors. When asked about the “ground-zero” mosque in New York City, the California congresswoman said Muslim leaders have the right to build a proposed Islamic center, including a mosque, two blocks from the World Trade Center site and that the decision should be made by local leaders. But then she goes further, saying, “There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.” She, of course, stands with Obama and against Harry Reid on this issue, which has many democrats trying to figure out which way the wind blows on the “Cordoba House.”

She starts out by asserting that the muslims have the right to build, which is all well and good. I think it’s fairly settled first amendment law that that’s the case. She’s also right in deferring to local authorities on the decision-making process. What’s interesting is her call for investigations into the funding of opposition to the mosque. Oddly enough, this puts her in good company with the mayor of New York City, who has said that any investigation into the funding of the 100 million dollar Cordoba House would be un-American.

Let’s backtrack a little. Back when Bush was in office, Nancy Pelosi made the news time and time again saying that dissent was patriotic. It was American, it was right to dissent, and it was in keeping with the best traditions of our country. Now, apparently, she’s changed her mind. If any dares to dissent from the decision to allow the community center building, she wants them investigated. The goal is clear: shut down opposition to the government by threatening to investigate one’s finances.

Where now is the liberal/left outrage about our free speech rights? If one objects to the building of a community center for muslims, one will have their finances investigated? Pelosi’s call for a federal investigation, for that is, after all, the only level of government in her purview, should be bone-chilling. Where is the ACLU? Where are the media, the bloggers, the protesters in the streets? Oh, wait, that’s right. They only believe in dissent if they’re the dissenters. If one dissents from them, well, they deserve to be investigated.

No-one should be shocked by this. If one disagrees with anything the left proposes, one is almost immediately labeled. Racist, fascist, hitleresque, etc. The list goes on, with one of their favorites being to invoke the spirit of Joe McCarthy. Now it’s un-American to wonder where Rauf got 100 million dollars when two years ago he had barely 18 thousand in the bank? Hell, I want to know so I can duplicate it!

I hope she does investigate. I hope she holds congressional hearings on television. I will give money to the opponents of the Cordoba House in the hopes that I get called to testify. And should that glorious day come, I will stand in front of Pelosi, and tell her that I plead the fifth. I will take the same position her heroes did in front of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee. I will stand, resolute and mute, and defy her and her cohorts. It’s no god-dammed business of hers where the opposition money comes from.

    Politician = Hypocrite

    Where’s the surprise? I will say whatever I must to acquire power. I will say whatever I must to keep it. Party affiliation is irrelevant.

      True, very true. It seems a shame to have to keep repeating it, though.
